Ailse was named for her grandmother Ailse PAYNE? Heflin. Sometimes spelled Alcy/Ailsy. She was born on a farm nr Grange City/Foxes Creek, the daughter/o Elijah & Elizabeth CRAIN Heflin.

Much of the Heflin Clan relocated to Knox County, Illinois after living on homesteads in Rush County, Indiana for several years.

Ailse married Jacob Edwards Rice, on 22 Mar 1838, in/nr the wee Town of Rio, Rio Twp, Knox, Illinois where she had been living.

The gold fever got a hold of Jacob and other kin, and they moved to the Colorado Gold Fields prior to the 1880 Federal Census, when Jacob was listed as a Miner.

When the mining panned out, Jacob found work on the RRF toll gate as a superintendent.

Jacob died at the age of 74, in 1892, whereas Ailse held on until she reached 88.

Ailse lived with son-in-law Thomas Jefferson Blue and his wife, Hattie C. RICE Blue in 1900 in/nr Twin Lakes, Lake County, Colorado. She also spent time with her daughter Mary RICE Jones and son-in-law Theodore M. Jones in the Leadville area and is buried near them in Grand Junction. She died in Twin Lakes shortly after returning there from spending the winter with her daughter Mary.

The 2nd 1900 Census named her a "Capitalist".

She and Jacob had either 8 or 9 children. Rec.s differ.
